After three consecutive wins Liverpool traveled to London to play against Leicester City. The opponents are not the most easy side to face on away games and a win was a must for the reds in order to cement a good start of the campaign in their bid for the title this season. Sadio Mane opened the score on 10th minute and just soon after Mohamed Salah missed an monumental occasion in front of an empty goal. The haters jumped and rivers of criticism flowed stating the overrating status of Egyptian forward and even more came days later when Jordan Henderson, the current captain renewed the contract. To be honest I think he is for sure not the best midfielders in the league but his amount of work in defense, pressing and in the construction of the team that play an attacking football as Liverpool is showing must have a player as Hendo. Milner again and again showed his great impact on the team and after a corner Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 on 45th minute. The game was under control of the visitors until Alison Baker complicated the situation trying to dribble Ihencacho, fall was intercepted by Leicester and from 63rd minute after the goal of Rachid Ghezzal the host started to push for an equalizer. Klopp felt the change of the balance and that the game might slip through the fingers and added in the attacking line Saqiri for counter attacks and pressing and in defense he brought in Joel Matip. By far not a very spectacular win but 4 out of 4 wins in the beginning of the season is definitely a good start before the international break.
Ady Howe AFC Bournemouth got a surprising win last season with an incredible 3-0 on Stamford Bridge against a under performing Chelsea of Antonio Conti. This time Sari motivated his team for a win and the goal of Pedro(72′) and Eden Hazard(85′) gain the victory for the Blues. Important to be noticed that visitors had few major occasions to score in order to go ahead or equalize due the mistakes of Rudiger or David Luiz. Dynamic match with plenty of chances from both sides and another team with 100% success in their four opening matches, Chelsea is on second with 12 point with less goals scored than Liverpool.
Manchester City get back in business after the Kyle Walker got a superb goal from a long range on 52nd minute at home against Newcastle United. Raheem Sterling opened the score on 8th minute with a nice shoot in the far corner and visitors replied with an equalizer on 30th minute through DeAndre Yedlin. It was clear after the end of the last season that finishing with a such great difference of point ans scored goals that beat long time standing records is not gonna happen this year, so Pep Guradiola changed the tactics and approach of the matches getting his best from all the players he’ve got. The draw with Wolverhampton was an disappointing moment but it is clear that it counts less in the fight for the Title then the direct matches against such teams as Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United or Tottenham.
Unai Emery started in his lining up away at Cardiff City both Lacazette and Aubameyang, dropping on the bench Henry Mkhitaryan. Gunners pushed in the end for a win with Alexandre Lacasette scoring the winner on 81st minute but the match was by far not an easy one. Arsenal went twice ahead: Shkodran Mustafi(11′) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang(62′) and twice Cardiff City got back into the game with the equalizers of Víctor Camarasa(45′) and Danny Ward(70′). Good sing for Arsenal supporters is that their strikers are getting better understanding with each others and starting to bring goals. The team still looked raw but the project in under its way and the success will come in time and it seems it’s going in the right direction.
Manchester United traveled to Burnley and on Turf Moor Stadium many teams from top six left defeated or losing precious points. The tension on the manager was mounting up with the rumors about the potential replacement with Zinedine Zidane, Romelu Lukaku header on 27th minute and the finishing after rebound on 44th minute were enough to seal a 2-0 away victory. Red card shown to Marcus Rashford that earned a penalty that Paul Pogba missed, was the only black mark of the day that brought a breath of fresh air for under pressure Jose Mourinho and his team that showed a composed play and an attacking football.
Mauricio Pochettino in the post conference after the 2-1 defeat away at Vicarage Road against Watford, stated that because they under estimated the opponents, Tottenham got beaten here first time since season 1986-1987. Spurs started well the game and put lot of pressure on the back line of Watford in consequence on 53rd minute, Tottenham went ahead after a shoot was delfected in the own goal by Abdoulaye Doucouré. After coinciding the goal Watford get the initiative and started to press more in the attack and after two free kicks the managed to equalize on 69th minute through Troy Deeney and get the winner with another header from a cross from the corner on 76th minute(Craig Cathcart). Tottenham Hotspur had their few chances to save at least a point but as it happens usually in football it wasn’t their day. Going in the international break Spurs remains on 5th position with 9 points after four games.
